Catching up. It was a smaller turnout this week, maybe in anticipation of the All-Day Event coming up on Saturday.

Most important thing was the new Crokinole League flicking off with 5 Matches.


Attendance = 19

Launched into space again for two more head-to-head time-pressure starship battles!

Game #1

The MALHER MAULERS (aka Josh & Demitri) (Black)
def. (4-0)
The Jesse Scott Tumblers (White)

> > > > > > > > < < < < < < < <

Game #2

The S.S. Screamin' Mimi (Demitri, Jesse, Nick, & Sylas) (White)
def. (4-3)
The H.M.S. Pinned To Fore (Alan, Wh.Bob, Derik, & Scott) (Black)

Great fun chasing each other around the board, with lots of rapid-fire rolling & re-rolling of dice. Going from 2v2 to 4v4 was crazy. Communication got very muddled and, well... mistakes were made.

Silly, but strangely fun little game of tossing cards onto the pile trying to cover up the other Players' icons and keep as many of your own visible to trigger their benefits (& scoring points).

Brian was right, I forgot this one. Another w/o game report... shake
(easily forgotten...)

James, Jeff, Robbie, & Scott toiled thru this

1
It was ok for what it was. Played co-op variant. Theme is fun and there, just way way way too much d6 rolling. Inane. I kept getting that G6 song parody, "Like a d6" stuck in my head...

robot I'd play again, but would never invest in this one. (unless someone came up with a house-ruled variation with other mechanisms to replace alot of the d6 rolling...)
43

Hold on, bgg.com is asking me to roll a d6 to see if I can upload this geeklist item:
1d6 = (4) = 4


Edit: per Robbie's correction below
